28 December 2012

Oh My! Is it end of the year already?

There must be something wrong with the calendar, how can it be 28th December already?! It only seemed yesterday that I was making plans for 2012, it feels like I haven't had a chance to carry out my plans. Heck, I can't even remember them! Still, now that Christmas is over it's time to reflect on the time past and looking to the year ahead.

First thing first, my final FO: Purple Leaves of Summer Vest

Pattern: Leaves of Summer Vest by Doris Chan
Yarn:   Panda Regal 4ply cotton
Hook:  5.0mm
Note: I couldn't get the hem to come out right according to the pattern so I winged it with a simple border and made some ties just under the bust. This is my final entry for the IntSweModo2012 challenge, my 12th!! I must have been mad when I signed up for the challenge, although I made it (just!!) it was a real struggle. Was I pleased that I'd done it? You bet I was! Would I ever do it again? I'd have to be totally off my head!! like my new mannequin ;)

Reflecting 2012:

It has been a busy year, and not just because I made 12 sweaters (have told you that already? :P), looking at my projects page of Rav I count 30 completed projects, that's not too bad, right? Plus I have acquired a new passion - spinning :D 

I'm excited about 2013, there are so many avenues to explore in spinning and dyeing, and I have many knitting and crochet projects lined up already. But one thing is for sure: I am NOT making 12 sweaters!

Happy New Year Everyone! May 2013 bring you much joy and happiness in whatever you do!

Thanks for dropping by, there is more fibre arts fun at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Indulge your creative side and join the party!  


  1. I adore that vest! I love your year in review and so glad that you are a part of Fiber Arts Friday.

  2. Thank you! I am so pleased to be part of your Fibre Arts Friday, and thank you for making me feel so welcome, it certainly makes crating so much more fun :D

  3. That vest is great! You had a very productive year!

  4. Great looking vest. Can't believe you made 12 sweaters; congrats! Good work, gal.

  5. I'm stunned... 30 projects, 12 of which were sweaters... in one year?? I'm speechless.

    I really like your new Mannequin. :-)

    Happy New Year!

  6. They say as we get older days/weeks/years go faster ... but seriously, how do you find time to finish so many projects? Not to mention learning to spin and dye, and work, study, blog, and ahem, minding your children. May 2013 be another fun filled productive year for you!

  7. This is an impressive collection of finished projects. I cannot imagine embarking on such a challenge but you've managed to conquer it. Congratulations, you should be very proud of your accomplishment.
